What is the Limburg Film Commission?
Limburg Film Commission is the official liaison between the local creative media industries in the province of Limburg in the Netherlands and national and international producers and production companies. Our mission is to attract (inter)national filmproductions to get to our province by bringing strong beneficial production reasons under the attention of foreign producers. We also stimulate, promote and strengthen Limburg as film region with several other activities. By doing this we aim to increase the number of productions shot in our region and to strenghten the professional industry.
The Limburg Film Commission cooperates closely with the Netherland Film Commission.
